Hey there all,
some thoughts and ideas from my point of view.
Seems we are dropping the original (mixed) Yaru and the bright one is getting the new Yaru and we are shipping a dark variation, too.
Also, the code is thanks to the developers (as I know @c-lobrano and @frederik-f) now much closer to Adwaita (because they also worked directly in Gnome upstream and rebootet Yaru on that base) and is now hopefully more easy to maintain.
After some time investigating and trying, I would like to suggest a few points for now to talk about to bring especially the dark variation closer to the ordinary, none professional people (without having to install “Tweaks” and so on).
- Renaming the (Ubuntu only) settings “Dock” to “Design & Dock” and put a drop-down menu into that settings, to give the user the power, to switch between all Yaru and Adwaita variations. Also asked @didrocks.
- Connect the theming to the “Nightlight” settings. So you can choose a theme (like Yaru dark) or it automatically finds the dark variation of your theme (its only a “-dark” after Yaru or Adwaita) and switches (if you want to) the theme when switching nightlight on/off. This may need work in Gnome directly, but would be a great addition to nightlight.
I will have a closer look at the actual design, for now just the following things are in my mind:
- The dock is too transparent - especially when in max-window mode
- Snaps seems not to be themed (calc and sysinfo)
Thanks and waiting for your response,
